What a powerful reminder of God's grace.
I have seen this before but it never fails to move me. It is just heartbreaking, isn't it? xo Diana
This is such a touching post. First, I love all God's creatures, I am particularly fond of birds and have had four as pets (I have 2 now). Whoever captured this was a special person. Thanks for sharing this, Laurie. Happy New Year to you, and all good things in 2012.

Oh.....I love that......how sad though. I think about that verse a lot. It really makes you realize God's infinite love for each of us. And how aware he is of us and our trials and triumphs. Thank you for the sweet reminder:)Xoxo,Shellagh
This is so sad, yet so beautiful.
I love this touching story, and the message Laurie. Many blessing to you my friend.
Amazing! Sad, yet with such a beautiful reminder of God's care for us.
Beautiful and sad. How God feels when his children fall. Laurie, I"m following you now. Found you via Pinterest. We are American missionaries living in Ukraine. I hope you'll come visit my artsy blog and follow there too. Pinning you to my "Christian" section of my Pinterest. Blessings on your day and Happy New Year.Coleenwww.vintageterrace2.blogspot.com
Amazing story, full of love.Lots of love for the New Year! Bless you!
How sad.I wish you a Happy New Year.HugsElna
Hi Laurie,This brought tears to my eyes. I can never fathom how anyone can be anything but loving to any of the amazing and wonderful animals on our earth. The horrid stories of animal cruelty hurt me so, and we should all be shocked at them and willing to help make things better in any way that we can. Education is key - this story reminds us that every creature on this earth is capable of feeling pain, joy, contentment and love!Wishing you a Happy and Healthy 2012,Lind at Beautiful Ideas

Dear Laurie, this was so heart breaking, yes all of God's creatures are equal...thank you for highlighting this very special meaning this season, N.xo
What a lovely post, Laurie! I feel privileged to see these photos. As a Christ follower, I don't know how awful it would be to lose a loved one without the faith that we will see them again one day. Our grief is only for a while, thankfully.-Revi
Laurie, did you take these photos? I was moved and also sad by them. I adore birds and have one of my own, and am very familiar with the scripture you shared. Which was the perfect one for a day like today, thank you, hugs, tami

Oh my goodness, what sweet and touching pictures these are! Little bird didn't die alone. Birds really are amazing little creatures. We have a hummingbird that's taken over our deck, he'll fight all the other males away but once in a while he has a girlfriend that he allows to drink from the feeder and sit on our plants:) He's quite the ladies man!Happy New Year Laurie and here's to a wonderful 2012!!!
